Former Vice-Consul for Education in Russia, Ms. Kimberly Williams is giving away 1000 ecourses for educators interested in teaching with technology.
“How to Teach With Technology” is an on-demand professional development ecourse that students can access online or offline with their iPhone or iPad. It is a comprehensive guide to the process of designing and creating engaging products for classrooms or ecourses. Participants walk away with podcasts, screencasts, Slideshare presentations, animated movies, and an online gallery for in-person presentations or online lectures. This program also shows teachers how to redesign their PowerPoints, create Prezis, find free images, film and edit movies, develop basic websites, and expand their career options with the creation of an online “brand.” The course includes screencasts, which explain the entire development process from the first log-on to the completed product, and comes with plenty of action steps to get started.
“Many teachers have little time to work through an ocean of new online tools to see which programs will work with the unique needs of their students,” said instructor Williams. “How to Teach With Technology is filled with practical advice that is designed to work with a variety of systems while helping teachers integrate technology into their existing lesson plans.”
